Robert

Very satisfied. Robert diagnosed the problem correctly and fixed it on the spot. He was courteous and helpful, and explained clearly what he was going to do, and why. He also gave me an estimate for some necessary further work, and showed me why that also needs to be done eventually. He is obviously a competent mechanic and understands the electronics involved. I would be glad to work with him again.

Trung was able to meet before the scheduled time, which worked out great for me. When he arrived he was very professional and finished the job in less than the estimated time for repair. He also was thorough about documenting the repairs done on the car.

Number #1 just knowing that you as a business were on the internet surprised me totally. I am a disabled 74 year old woman that doesn't get out much and when my fan belts broke I didn't know where to turn. Then here comes this big kid driving slowly down my driveway being careful not to hit my little dogs, he gets out of the car and says "Mary Brooks" and I said "Brandon", he then said lets fix your car....What a pleasant gentle young man, described to me what he was going to do after looking at the problem. After fixing the problem he went on to say the things that I should be concerned and how to fix them or to give Your Mechanic a call and have them come out again to possibly fix whatever needed to be done and of course I would ask for him, Brandon. I will use your service and Brandon again. Thank you so very much. Give Brandon Kudos for a job well done. Mary E Brooks

All about Water Pump Replacement

The water pump, a container made of aluminum or iron, is part of the cooling system. It contains an impeller (looks like a fan) that circulates water and coolant throughout the cooling system, keeping the engine from overheating. It is located in the engine compartment. For the water pump to work, it needs to turn. This is accomplished either by the drive belt or timing belt/chain. If the water pump is not working, the coolant will not circulate through the cooling system causing the engine to overheat and get severe damages.
